Commenting to Capital News, Minister Tennakoon’s son Premitha Bandara Tennakoon MP for the Matale District stated that, “this was a politically motivated case, there has never been a case as such filed against anyone in Sri Lanka in the past. Further, there are two cases in the High Court pertaining to one incident. They arrested and jailed Minister Janaka Bandara Tennakoon with no proper remand order in the case. We filed a case in the Court of Appeal in 2016 and it has taken four years for justice to be done.” The order dismissing the indictments was issued by the President of the Court of Appeal A.H.M Nawaz and Sobitha Rajakaruna.
